*****On October 18th the Spring side of the park will be closing at 12pm due to a special event. Glass Bottom Boats will begin at 10am and the last boat will leave the dock at 11:30am. There will be no Extended Tours on this day.*****
The World Famous Glass Bottom Boats at Silver Springs State Park give visitors a unique view of the underwater beauty and history of Silver Springs. Knowledgeable captains give a 30 minute tour of the springs that fill the Silver River. Stopping over the deep springs to describe the unusual formations, ancient artifacts, and even movie props from early, underwater films from Hollywood, our captains share their knowledge of what makes Silver Springs State Park so special. Glass panels built into the deck of each boat create a perfect window to reveal the one-of-a-kind artifacts and antiquities hidden below the surface of the crystal clear waters.
Boat tours run every 30-45 minutes, from 10AM to 4:30PM daily:
(The last boat tour will leave at 4:30p.m.)
